Coats Family

Coats family

Current location: El Progreso, Honduras

The Coats family joined Team Honduras on the field in April of 2011. God has led them to begin a new outreach endeavor under the ministry of Iglesia Bautista El Faro in El Progreso, Honduras to begin a much needed children’s home called Hope of Honduras. Through our partnership with Hope International Ministries of Tampa, FL, we plan to provide a Christian home to abandoned and neglected children in Honduras. Read about our Journey to Honduras.
